In May 2008, she received France s highest award, but her beginnings were slightly more humble. She was the youngest of 14 children born to poor parents.

She needed a change of image and had cosmetic and dental surgery. She also had English lessons to polish her accent for singing songs in English. Her English debut, the 1990 album Unison, brought her to the world s attention. Dion has spent two decades making hit albums in English and sticking to her roots by singing in French. She says she is a French singer who occasionally records in English. Her 1995 release D eux is still the best-selling French album of all time. She continues to perform regularly and is today regarded as one of pop music's most influential female vocalists. Dion is also a clever businesswoman.
